tractor-merciersComing to the mountains for many people is a great escape.  Some to relax, some to enjoy God’s beauty that surrounds them and some to explore fun and unique things to do for  fun!  Or how about, escape to North Georgia for all of the above!   Today I would like to write about my number 4 summer fun idea!

Before the weather gets too hot, take a visit to one of the most beautiful places in Blue Ridge,  Mercier Orchards.  Gather the kids and spend some time picking delicious strawberries at the largest orchard in Georgia (over 200 acres). You all can enjoy a fun tractor ride as you head to the strawberry patch.

You can truly make a day of this visit as they have a wonderful deli and bakery on site where you can enjoy a hearty breakfast, lunch or one of their famous fried apple pies!  There is a store as well full of goodies and various items that you will enjoy.  Coming up on Fathers day weekend,  there is a cooking class for kids to make a special pizza for dad as well as a Fathers Day Brunch on Sunday.  If you would like to plan ahead, mark your calendars for August 3rd where there will be a family fishing event. 

I know you will truly enjoy this summer fun idea.  If you missed out on my last summer idea, check it out here.  Let The mountain Life Team show you some great deals and amazing homes or cabins in the Blue Ridge area while you are here.  Once again….happy summer fun!
